Jeter closes out home career
NEW YORK (AP) — Expect it to be a long night at Yankee Stadium tonight as the team and its fans say good bye to long-time captain Derek Jeter. The 40-year-old will be playing in his final home game before ending his 20-year career with the Yankees. This will be the culmination of a seven-game final home stand for the future Hall of Fame shortstop that has already seen fans have standing with each and every at-bat, taking pictures and videos while chanting Jeter’s name and lauding him with sustained ovations.
And apparently no price is too high to be part of the festivities.
Tickets on the secondary market for home game number 1,391 in Jeter’s 20-season career are going for $248 in the bleachers up to $10K in section 19, right next to the Yankees dugout.
